Reports stated that Tata has been releasing teasers and images of its new Harrier SUV for a while now and during its media drive event, has announced more details about its upcoming five seat SUV. As the Harrier shares its platform with the rather large (for this segment) Land Rover Discovery Sport, it is nearly the same size as its British counterpart, and as such dwarfs a large selection of its competition.
Accordingly the five seat SUV measures 4,598mm in length, 1,894mm in width, 1,706mm in height and has a wheelbase that is 2,741mm long. The ground clearance is pegged at 205mm. The Harrier boasts a fuel tank capacity of 50 liters and tips the scales at 1,675kg, which makes it a bit heavier than its rivals, though its 235/70 R16-235/65 R17 tyres are at par (with a spare wheel that is 235/70 R16).
The Harrier shares its transversely mounted 2.0 liter diesel engine and 6 speed manual gearbox with the Jeep Compass. However, in the Harrier, this motor will make 140hp and 350Nm compared to the Compass’ 173hp/350Nm power plant. At launch, this will be the only power train option, though a Hyundai sourced six speed automatic and a petrol engine will join the lineup at a later date.
